Rant & Rave for Friday, Nov. 30, 2012

--- — To the one who said that tithes was not demanded in the earlier church. Why don’t you do more research. Tithes was given before God commanded that we are to be obedient in paying a tenth — tithe. Tithes and offerings are put to use in paying the pastor, paying utility bills, Sunday School supplies, pay for a group to come to sing, fall festivals, and other activities in the church. Not all pastors and churches misuse the funds.

Thanks to the Humane Society of Valdosta/Lowndes County. This group of dedicated individuals are working hard to ensure a quality life for animals in our area. The adoption events hosted by this group and the low cost spay/neuter program is greatly appreciated. Your diligence does not go unnoticed.

The biggest group of takers in America compose of big oil and farmers. Why are they subsidies? Especially big oil with their larger profits. These are your takers. But as long as you complain about your neighbor getting a little help you overlook what’s really going on.

Obama is a great president. I am a graduate student who works, pays taxes, and lives on $330 per month. Obama got me health insurance when I couldn’t afford it, and I don’t believe the         wealthiest country in   the world should let its own citizens die from lack of health care, easy as that.

To the ranter thinking that pastors keep 90 percent of money given to the church. Wrong. Most churches have a salary for their pastor and money is spent on electricity, water, etc. Money is given to charities, widows, ministry and various sources for the needy. That does not mean that some churches do not use God’s money correctly or wisely. But feel free to give to the needy directly then you know where your money is going.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.
